What People Are Saying About Les Baux-de-Provence
Would recommend this trip to everyone wanting to get some imformation about the area and the history . Guide was most imformative and we enjoyed the experience. We were picked up from our hotel on time.
We had a fantastic tour with Conny on 16th May. Despite being a public holiday we managed to cover 220 kilometres and really see the best of Provence. We saw beautiful villages and had enough time to have a good impression of each - we liked being told the information on the way into the villages, dropped off, shown where to go and then having the freedom to wander ourselves before meeting up again. Impressive views and time to take scenic photographs. Loved going to St Remy de Provence and then Pont du Gard at the end of the day. We would recommend this if you are short of time (ie don't have many days in the area) or if you want a taster to know where to return to. Sadly we were too early for the lavender fields but we saw plenty without that. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it interesting.
I was very pleased with all aspects of the tour and, as my written evaluation indicated, some of it felt too rushed to really have time to take in the experience.
It's amazing to have such a beautiful place to visit. However without Eric's knowledgable stories, we won't see through the gem. This tour will live in our memory forever!
We really got on with Jeremy, our guide/driver, who was very informative about the region of Provence, and both the visit to Les-Baux-de-Provence village, and the Castellas Olive Mill were really enjoyable. Our host at the Mill, Remy, was brilliant.... very knowledgable, passionate about the business and enthusiastic in sharing this with us. The whole story of getting from harvested olives to finally blended and bottled oils was explained in depth, with a lot of humour, and the tasting was so interesting as well. Such a contrast to the visit to the Mas de la Dame winery. No explanations of the harvest, the varieties of grape they grow, nor the wine-making process at all. Yes, we got to taste five or six wines, but felt the emphasis was more on selling the product than explaining how it got to the shop. No real experience for us about their work. Overall though, we did enjpy our five hours or so.
